Looking for a good shop to get a panel-off paint job. I'd like to find a good, cheap place to have this done. I'll also consider anyone on here, if you're good enough My zip code is 21087. I dont want to travel more than 50 miles. Any suggestions?
Thanks
Greg

80 miles I might have to go with the "usual" guy. He's snappy and complains a lot.

I'd like to experiment with painting someday, but its just not the time for that. I'm 17, soon to be $5k in debt, and my dad would kill me.

You're going to be 5K in debt because of paint? If not, maybe now's not the best time to paint regardless. If you're worried about the money involved, keep in mind you could purchase everything you need and enough medium grade paint to paint your car three times over for what it's going to cost for a base coat clear coat from anywhere local.

The debt consists of a) my current car, and b) my loan to buy my Fiero. It will need to be painted asap, or my dad will make me buy a car cover and store it at the bottom of our hill. A local guy, who painted my last Fiero perfectly, charges around $1000. Painting is something I'll experiment with when I get a few bucks together and have when I get my own place.

I know you've already made a statement about not wanting to get into doing this yourself and I understand and respect that - good for you. But.... being Emerald brought up the point above, I thought I'd show you what I did in April of 2009. I already had all of the equipment I would need to do a great job of painting my car, but I was trying to balance school and color selection. Essentially, I didn't have the time to think out what I wanted to do, but my car was an eye sore, being I had recently changed it to the GT body style and it was 4 different colors:



So I found a gallon of simi gloss chassy paint, which costs me only $40. I didn't do any prep work other than a very light sanding where the clear coat was peeling on the red panels, and sprayed the entire car in the driveway in an afternoon. It was anything but perfect or to my standards, but it looked one hell of a lot better than before, and it was ridiculously cheap, albeit a ***** to sand off later on.

Hmm... I mean, that does sound promising, but I dont know... I'd rather just not do crazy experimentation at the moment. Too many things in my life right now.

When do you take possession of the new canvas. You really could pull off an el cheapo paint job on your own. If you just want an OK temporary look, roll on some Rustoleum.

No do not do that! If you don't have the time to spray on a cheap automotive finish, you don't have time to sand Rustoleum off once it breaks down.

I did an OK job on my wife's car. Did a whole body off paint job. Purple and black. I now know the fundamentals of how it should be done. Been there, did that and gotta say, $1000.00 is extreeeeemely reasonable for even a so-so paint job. If you help out and do a bit of the prep work, (sanding) maybe you could work with him on the price. If you need a place to work and some of the tools, I'm around the corner and sometimes share my toys. If you do find someone local for less, do me a favor and drop me his number. I got some work for him!!

Wow, I dont know why I didnt put the pieces together any earlier. My friend told me theres a purple fiero at the bank where the red one was. I finally saw it today, and WOW! I need to see that up close. That color is intense.
